This is the same source as the Charlie Miller version. The difference is that I burned this version to CDR for Scott. Charlie did a direct transfer from the cassette.

Like another guy furthur up, I had no idea this existed. Just amazing.

And you know, I never thought of Jerry's guitar as particularly sexy, but him and Janis starting at about 2:30 are gettin' it on.

Ozoid, you mentioned that in the NRPS set, janis & pig did a few songs. Do you, or does ANYONE, have a copy of that NRPS set?

Thanksss... KB

I didn't even know until today that this recording -- or anything like it -- existed. It blew me away. Just awesome.

I happened across this show using the "this day in history" feature and boy am I happy I did for the Lovelight alone. The constant rap between Pigpen, Janis and the Crowd is amazing. The energy at this show must have been incredible. Not the most epic Lovelight, but an interesting version to say the least.

Thank you Archive!

Subject: Now we know.

Well. Now we know... what PigPen liked, and what Janis didn't. Ever the crowd-pleaser, Janis acknowledges that "We still might be able to get it together." And indeed they do.

Sound is great, and while the whole show is very good, it's Lovelight that I keep playing over and over and over. Some neat interplay between Janis and Jerry about 3 minutes in... a filthy exchange with PigPen starting around 4 minutes, lots of wailing and crowd interplay, a classic disassemble/reassemble jam, and then the vocal finale, slightly awkward, but geez, they were improvising. This show was just a couple of weeks after the Festival Express tour, and the energy is perfect.

This may be the sexiest performance in the history of rock.

Janis and Pig on Lovelight is jaw droppingly beautiful and deserves more attention than it's received.

Janice and Pig - Check out Jer with the wawa - sadly this was their last performance together and she was dead weeks after this.

Whew!!! Thank god Janis broke the ground for the rest of us. What a delightfully dirty girl!

Subject: Raunchy Lovelight
Nice early Candyman and China/Rider in this short download, but check out the downright raunchy Lovelight interaction between Janis and Pigpen. She keeps tryin' to get him going, but he won't rap. Oh well, with this crisp, but hissy tape, you can almost smell the pheromones :)

Subject: Many thanks
This was one of the best nights of my life, so I'm glad to have found these recordings.

Not to seem un-grateful, but there was a NRPS set too, which featured Pigpen-Janis duets on 2 Haggard drinking tunes, Last Night the Bottle Let Me Down and Swinging Doors.
